WELCOME to Modern African

What is a Modern African?

We believe a modern African is a bold, aspirational and cosmopolitan person of African hertiage. They are quintessentially African and a citizen of the world.

At Modern African, we offer quality, creative and ethically made African inspired fashion accessories, homewares, art, stationery and gift ideas. We create and curate a range of inspirational items to enhance your wardrobe and inspire your individuality. We know from first-hand experience that it is sometimes difficult to find African inspired gift items. We also provide bespoke gift ideas and gifting service.

To help the world discover African designers and artisans based in Africa and throughout the world, we have begun to put together the African Fashion Directory (coming soon).

As modern Africans, living in Europe, we are passionate about sharing our heritage with the world by exploring what Africa as a continent, has to offer today. We shine a spotlight on the list of sovereign states and dependent territories in Africa. It includes both fully recognised states, states with limited or zero recognition, and dependent territories of both African and non-African states. We list all 56 sovereign states (54 of which are member states of the United Nations), two non-sovereign (dependent) territories of non-African sovereign states, and nine sub-national regions of non-African sovereign states.

We hope you will join us on the journey of rediscovery and the explosion of African inspired design.
